Android SDK for Gingerbread may come next week

Google may post the software development kit (SDK) for Gingerbread next week if rumors are accurate. A source would have the tools posted on November 11, just a few weeks after completing the OS. IntoMobile in describing the "trusted" contact's info noted that the latest Google Maps update has interface cues that may be signs of the early SDK finding its way into official apps.

The timing would have it show just three days after Samsung's November 8 event and has raised the possibility that Gingerbread may make an appearance at the New York City gathering. Samsung is still using Android 2.1 on all of its Galaxy S phones except for a European 2.2 update going out today, but it could serve as a partner to introduce Gingerbread (2.3).

Most expect the event to bring the Continuum, a dual-screen Galaxy S for Verizon, but conflicting rumors have surfaced over a possible Google-blessed sequel to the Nexus One that would be made by Samsung but run a stock version of Gingerbread.
